Welcome to the School of Life Sciences and Technology, Tongji University

Since our school was established, a host of scholars from both home and abroad have come to work and study here, and many of them have been academic leaders. With an aim to be ranked among top-notch bio-related scientific research institutes, School of Life Sciences and Technology is trying to build a strong teaching and research faculty.

This plan mainly aims at recruiting two types of people, one type for the long-term research and the other for short-term. For those applying for the long-term positions, they should be under 55, and with world-class research capabilities. Within the past five years, they should have published important academic articles in core journals in the international academic circles, or have been awarded with distinguished technology awards, or be in good mastery of important experiment skills and key technology. The applicants for long-term positions should either have worked as professors or in equivalent positions in famous international universities or research institutes, or have served in managerial positions as professional and technical personnel in internationally famous companies. They should be in possession of independent intellectual property rights or key technologies, and have independent overseas business experience.
